Google is considering a new service in Chrome that would recommend articles based on browsing history. There articles would be served when a new tab is opened in Chrome.
It sounds as if it would offer articles similar to how Google Now recommends articles to users based on browser history, such as searches and sites visited, and interests.
VentureBeat confirms multiple references to both a “Morning Reads” and a ChromeReader service. And not surprisingly, there is the possibility that Google would serve some articles via AMP.
Google also confirmed they were exploring this type of service in Chrome.
Google confirmed it is still testing the feature, which is not yet available. “We’re always experimenting with new features in Chrome, but have nothing new to announce at this time,” a Google spokesperson told VentureBeat.
This new feature has not yet been made available for testing via Chromium or Canary, and it could get killed before it ever makes it to a public test. But it will definitely be worth testing out for publishers when it does become available in Canary or Chromium.
